A fine viewpoint.
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman,  16 Nov 2011
At G805 525 A take the well defined lane going E and follow it up for 1k where it peters out. A little further along note some ruined farm buildings and just beyond these a stream. Follow the stream uphill as it forms an obvious and deep gully. Continue up the high left bank to the gully's end and then go along a fence running uphill to a fence junction at G8243651919 B. Pick up a small but obvious gully in the hillside and follow it up to, and then through, an eroded area of peat hags G8278051878 C some 2.5 k into the walk. Continue up a few metres to gain the crest and then go ENE along the broad flat top to the trig pillar and a substantial cairn G8330452069 D. The distance up and back is just over 6k. There are fine views NE over L. Melvin and N to the Bluestacks. To the W is Truskmore, the highest of the Dartry Mountains, and further around S the Castegal ridge.
